The Old Testament is a hot topic right now. Two of the most controversial topics are the existence of Adam and the ethics of the Old Testament. This month P&R Publishing will release God, Adam, and You: Biblical Creation Defended and Applied edited by Richard D. Phillips. Here’s a list of contributors and their topics:
Derek W.H. Thomas – The Bible’s First Word; Differing Views on the Days of Creation
Joel R. Beeke – The Case for Adam; Christ, the Second Adam
Kevin DeYoung – Two Views of the Human Person
Liam Goligher – Adam, Lord of the Garden
Richard D. Phillips – The Bible and Evolution; God’s Design for Gender, Marriage, and Sex; From God’s Garden to God’s City
Carl R. Trueman – Original Sin and Modern Theology
Richard D. Phillips (MDiv, Westminster Theological Seminary) is the senior minister of Second Presbyterian Church of Greenville, South Carolina. He is a council member of the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals, chairman of the Philadelphia Conference on Reformed Theology, and coeditor of the Reformed Expository Commentary series.
I look forward to reading this. It should be out later this month. It will be a paperback with 224 pages and sell for $14.99.
